In this study, the effect of a multiple function reagent-ferrate on the removal of microcystins-LR (MCLR) from freeze-dried Planktothrix sp. was investigated. The toxin was easily decomposed by oxidation with ferrate, and the removal efficiency depended on the dosage of ferrate, pH, and contact time. Simultaneously the reduction product Fe(OH)(3) after ferrate oxidation could flocculate the organic compounds so that 50% TOC removal of the extract was reached. The low residual iron reflected the… CONTINUE READING
